Kidney Failure In Cats


One of our two rescue kitties (black Purcilla) manx mix died two weeks ago of kidney failure she was only eight years old. We adopted two feral kitties from PAWS in 2008.

Our Anatolian puppy sat down next to her barked once to alert me something was wrong. She went into shock and then the vet had to put her to sleep. This all happened so fast. Rest in peace sweet Purcilla you had the best life we could give you.

This kitty could not go to the vet ever. She was a feral rescue and refused to be touched or held. 

Lessons learned from rescuing feral kitties?

  1. These cats will not adapt to humans in a way to enjoy being held and loved.
  2. They will show you they appreciate your home and love.
  3. Feral kitties will learn house rules and are smart.
  4. Not all feral kitties should live outside. Our kitties lived indoors 100% of the time and were happy.

Feral:

  • A feral cat is a cat who has either never had any contact with humans or her contact with humans has diminished over time. She is fearful of people and survives on her own outdoors. A feral cat is not likely to ever become a lap cat or enjoy living indoors.
  • Kittens born to feral cats can be socialized at an early age and adopted into homes. Maybe!

Select Cat Kidney Failure

Rest in Peace Sweet Purcilla! Purcilla died three weeks ago it has taken me this long to talk about it on my blog. She was a feral rescue meaning she never really liked people. She loved us we know for sure, she loved our dogs too. Our kitties were indoor only kitties.

Here is her sister Jasmine. She is doing good but misses her sister. She sleeps with our dogs. Did you know cats can have different dads?

I have learned cats act like donkeys. Cat’s are stoic just like the donkey and will not show sickness or pain until it is too late. Purcilla was playing the night before with her toys. Rest in peace sweet Purcilla.

Saying Goodbye To 2015! Come On 2016!!!!!


melodyscottrubybeachmarch1st2015

Hubby and I have been working on our farm since August of 2013. Another year has quickly disappeared, so many great and sad things have come and gone. We are most grateful to GOD for keeping us healthy; emotionally, physically and mentally. We are fifty-five now and this is one of our final bucket list destinations. Living our life simpler with less stress. 2016 we will celebrate our twenty-third year as a couple. Wow!

Great things:

Arena completed.

Hay cut and donated to starving horses as we will grow low sugar/protein hay (sell).

Enjoyed the Olympic Mountains over and over again.

Fences completed, stained.

I created an amazing food garden out of hanging baskets. After the house is completed I will have raised beds.IMG_20150519_133142IMG_20150519_133656IMG_20150519_133744

Living in the 5th wheel has been a challenge in the winter seasons but extremely easy in the spring, summer and fall as we have full sun on our farm, Sequim, WA.

Less rain has helped my body, arthritis and pain will be with me the rest of my life from the Semi-truck accident. Screws in my pelvis cause severe pain and arthritis.

Jewel our twelve year old middle dog had a very dangerous tumor (cancer) on her hip and tummy. Surgery was successful and she is healing she is one strong dog. Thank you Jesus!

We have a new puppy!

Naturally we did the best thing;

We had our vet send him to heaven no more pain, I cried for three weeks and still call the new puppy his name. I will always love you Sampson! Sampson was our rescue Great Pyrenees/Akita. We had no idea he was sick until one week before he let us know with extreme screaming pain.

I thought I had a publisher for my donkey educational book, turned out to be a scam. Still praying for a publisher.

My hubby Scott and I are grateful to GOD to give us this farm, let us own the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC and keep our marriage strong in the middle of some serious test and trials. We are best friends. If you get the opportunity to marry, marry your best friend. Love and friendship must go hand-and-hand as marriage is hard work.

Living in a small space is not easy but it can be done. We are a testimonial to this. IMG_6423

Warm In The Pacific Northwest, Feb 2015


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

GOD has been smiling on us, giving us favor as we took a leap of faith packed our life away, left our large home and moved into our 5th wheel in Sequim, WA 2014. The winter of 2015 has been breaking records for warmth, we are now reaching 60 degrees most days and all of the hay is starting to grow again, soon it will be time to cut hay again. Seems while most of the east coast is suffering from record snow levels and freezing temperatures we are enjoying spring weather. Here are a few of the photos I have taken since moving to Sequim, WA our last stop here on earth.

Marriage is never easy, it takes two people who work hard to help one another achieve their dreams and goals for this I am grateful to GOD and my hubby Scott of twenty-two years. We enjoy our 5th wheel as it is a free life, less time to clean and more time to play. If we did not have a strong marriage and GOD to guide us give us faith this would be a journey that would be most difficult, with GOD in Jesus Christ name nothing is impossible. We have learned that you really do not need much to enjoy life, stuff is just stuff! You need a loved one your health, shelter and time to dance in your mind. I say in your mind as the screws in my pelvis do not authorize me to dance anymore, I am truly screwed down, locked down tight in my pelvis, cant twist, bend and still I suffer from pain and numbness in my feet almost five years later.

Living in the 5th wheel has provided us with freedom. We find more time to enjoy one another, the farm, the Olympic Mountains, ocean, rivers and of course all of our animals. Most importantly the flat land is a rehabilitation spot for me as I walk everywhere on the farm as it is flat. Animals are GOD’s angels sent to heal our souls so never abuse your pet, and always be grateful each and every day. As tomorrow what you had today could be gone forever. Life is fragile and precious, if you have your health you are rich beyond measure. I miss my health each and every day and continue to pray the pain will go away. Five years on April 13, 2015 since the semi-truck accident.

All of our eight equine are so relaxed and happy, this makes me and hubby beyond happy. We have two horses (mares), two standard rescue donkeys no paperwork, one Mammoth donkey Rio Johnson, and three minis.

I am happy to report I can now ride easier, train again and enjoy walking again as our property is mostly flat. Less rain makes it easier for me to move and the more I move the better I feel. If you have recently suffered from trauma I just want to say to you to trust Jesus Christ and never give up. No matter how bad the pain, never give up. My marriage has never been stronger and I am grateful to Jesus Christ for my husband of twenty-two years Scott. Scott is not only my better half he is my best friend. If we can only have one best friend in our entire life this is indeed a blessing but to get to marry our best friend this is a gift from Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for my life and husband. Trying to survive this thing called life without JESUS CHRIST and my husband would be indeed very difficult. Living with a life long disability is not easy and yet here I am working on my second year of running my new business a world-wide educational equine business for all donkey, horse and mule owners. GOD is amazing, never give up!

Jesus, Life, Animals, marriage and Unconditional Love


riogivingmelodyhug

Friends Of The Donkey Whisperer Farm,

Life Is Precious and Fragile

newfarmphoto1 

Perhaps this is your first time reading my blog, I want to say thank you for reading my blog as I pray that my pain and suffering will in some way help you find peace, joy and come to your knees for Jesus Christ as us humans can do nothing without Jesus.  Select GOD created a miracle for me to read more.

Before the accident I was healthy, happy, riding my horse three times a week for three and four-hour trail rides with other ladies I met that liked to ride horses with me I felt like we were friends as we had much in common (it is safer to trail ride with a buddy).  All of these friends never ever checked in on me or called me again after the accident.  Our church and close friends brought food, cards and more in to help but after six months the phone stopped ringing and then they went away too.  Still GOD provided blessings with my husband standing by me and all of my angel animals.

Trauma will either break a marriage or make it stronger

Thank you Jesus trauma made our marriage of almost twenty-one years living together and fourteen years being married stronger.

Why Do People Go Away During Trauma?

We had one set of friends who did not go away and they are still our close friends but that’s it. Trauma seems to burn all the non-essential things away from our life and I experienced a period of time of spending many, many hours and years alone while my husband went to work, in my most deepest times of pain and suffering I used my Ipod with Max McLean reading the bible to me Psalms was very helpful. As I was not able to lift my bible up the pain was to great with all the broken ribs and collapsed lung.  Job was the most helpful for at the end of Job GOD gives JOB double for his trouble!  If you read JOB you will see Job did nothing wrong to get the pain and suffering he endured as I did nothing wrong to deserve the pain and suffering I endured and still endure each and every day from the rods in my pelvis. This is what GOD is doing for me and my husband he is giving us double for our trouble and it feels like he is rewarding us for staying in faith with Jesus as I am slowly getting stronger and stronger and the new medicine helps tremendously with the pain.

Mellily2009

My life was it seemed to me to be perfect as I would wake up each morning like a child at christmas I could not wait to get down to the barn to see my horse and donkeys a dream come true.  I had waited thirty-four years to get a horse again and I was so happy to finally have my children full-grown and get this last chance before I was too old.  In a matter of seconds everything changed forever as I got into a car with a person who made a mistake ran a stop sign and a semi-truck full of cow manure smashed into the passenger door where I was sitting.  I am forever disabled but I am not dead in fact in many ways I am a better person for what I have survived as I now have the ability to read an authentic human from the rest in a matter of seconds.  Many long-term friends of over thirty years went away.  Why?  Well I guess they were weak and could not stay with me while I suffered year after year with pain and agony so they just stopped being my friend and even betrayed me at my most darkest hour.  Looking back these people were not bad people they were simply weak people who could not do the right thing under trauma. “GOD burnt away all non-essential relationships with the trauma and he is bringing some amazing new people to be my friends into my life, people who are stronger than me and people who truly have depth perception of this little thing called life.”

After I almost died nothing else really mattered to me except keeping my marriage and my farm.  The little distractions in life that used to bother me no longer bother me as they are non-essential.

I truly believe that my animals helped me get well as they gave me the inspiration to push hard to continue with physical therapy for three years.  They pushed me to never give up and get my life back and I am forever grateful to my husband for letting me keep my farm in the midst of trauma.

What Did Grandpa Say About Friends?

My grandfather is long gone to heaven now and I miss him every single day as I do my father, I lost my father at the age of nine years old. “Grandpa would say to me, Melody if you walk with ducks you will become a duck. Be careful who you choose to be your friend.”  

Earlier today I was discussing this issue with a fellow blogger and well it gave me the desire to write a post about how animals can heal our human broken heart. Animals will love us humans unconditionally 100% and never ever hurt us or let us down unlike most humans.

A nest of baby wild rabbits in my flower garden – truly a gift from GOD!

I can’t wait to see them hopping around the farm

babyrabbitttts

One of the reasons I have been drawn to animals since I was a young child was I picked up on this at a very young age.  “Animals can determine in a matter of seconds the character of a human being as they have a natural sixth sense that helps them determine who is a great and safe human and who is angry and dangerous.”

The bible is clear that we must put all of our trust in Jesus and not in mankind as humans will betray or disappoint us.  Why is this?  I think very weak humans cannot help themselves they only do what they have grown up doing or they were betrayed and hurt so deeply that they cannot love themselves.

lilymelodybarn2013

Back to animals

Animals love unconditionally, they truly do!  Animals do not ask much from us humans, shelter, food, water, love, petting and they know when we are sad, afraid, mad or tired.  They know when we are happy, excited and they pick up on our energy.

Animals live in the moment they truly do.  Animals enjoy each day as it comes and do not worry about what tomorrow will bring.
